Shanghai Pudong Airport Overflowing Backlog Takes Up to Two Weeks to Load

The Shanghai Pudong International Airport in China is overflowing with export cargo. The airport's operational capacity has been reduced since the middle of last month due to the government's tightening of quarantine, and the cargo area was temporarily shut down due to the outbreak of infected people at the airport on the 20th and 21st of last month. The cargo area was temporarily shut down due to the outbreak of infected people at the airport on the 20th and 21st of March, and cargo flights have been suspended for the rest of the week due to the inability to process the backlog. As for import cargo, the number of arriving cargoes has been decreasing due to restrictions imposed by airlines on consignments, so the delay in picking up cargoes at the shed is said to be only about one day. Export cargo, on the other hand, is experiencing serious delays. The sharp decrease in arrivals has led to a sharp decrease in departures, and in some cases, it has taken up to two weeks for export cargo to be loaded onto aircraft. The backlog has increased, forcing cargo to be placed outdoors outside the sheds.
